On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the two middleweight title fights taking place Saturday, June 29.
On that date, WBO belt holder Demetrius Andrade fights Maciej Sulecki at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. This will headline a card shown live on DAZN in the U.S. and on Sky Sports in the U.K.
Also on that date, interim WBC belt holder Jermall Charlo fights Brandon Adams at the NRG Arena in Houston, Texas. This will headline a PBC card shown live on Showtime in the U.S. and on ITV4 in the U.K.
We got comments from Demetrius Andrade, Jermall Charlo, and Brandon Adams on Tuesday's media conference call.
Also discussed is the current situation in the middleweight division, and much more.
